One industry that you can perform at home which is overlooked by most work at home websites is nursing. Some people are pretty surprised that you can do nursing from the comfort of your couch, but the reality is that it is a highly sought after position. Insurance companies, pharmacies, nursing homes, and hospitals are all looking for work at home nurses. Below are just a few of the many companies looking for nurses now.
Aetna is always looking for nurses who can work at home. Their benefits package is excellent and includes continued education, encouraging their employees for additional certifications, and licensing reimbursement. On top of that, they are an insurance company, so their insurance package isn’t too bad. You may have to do some traveling based on your position; however, most of your work will be done at home.

Best Doctors hire nurses to answer questions and assist Dr’s with patients needs. It’s a service that many insurance providers are offering to keep visits to the office down. Insurance companies would much rather you call in and talk with a Dr or nurse about an issue or a question you might have instead of going straight to your family Dr and racking up a massive bill. Best Doctors is also an excellent service if you aren’t sure if you should see a Dr or if it’s ER worthy. The company has a great reputation, and they offer a competitive salary along with 401K, medical/dental/vision insurance, paid time off, and more. They also hire both RN’s and LPN’s.

Express Scripts is an online pharmacy who hires Rn’s, pharmacists, and customer service agents. An RN would require travel as you would have a caseload of patients to visit. This company seems to offer a competitive wage and benefits, although some reviews suggest that they the job can be overwhelming. Multiple reviews are stating that employees are overworked and underpaid, so take time and research before applying to see if this is the type of job that will work for you and your needs.

From what I have seen, the insurance companies seem to offer the most in terms of salary and benefits.

CareNet hires RN’s as Care Advisors to work at home handling triage over the phone. The reviews are mixed with some people who love CareNet and others who hate it so make sure you research it well before deciding to apply. Read our review about CareNet here.

I highly recommend researching a company thoroughly before applying. It’s good to have an idea of the type of work you will be doing along with salary, benefits, and if the company that you choose goes along with your idea of a good patient experience. Remember you are choosing your next career, not just another job.
